Holyrood Park with St Margaret’s loch and St Anthony’s Chapel. a Panoramic Photo
St Margaret’s Loch is a shallow man-made loch to the south of Queen’s Drive. It is around 500m east of Holyrood Palace, and about 100m north of the ruin of St Anthony’s Chapel. Once a boggy, marshland, the loch was formed in 1856 as part of Prince Albert’s improvement plans for the area surrounding the palace. The loch has been used as a boating pond but is now home to a strong population of ducks, geese, and swans.
St Anthony’s Chapel was probably built in the first half of the 15th Century, but may be older. Its origins are obscure, but it seems very likely that it was connected with the nearby Abbey of Holyrood. It was originally rectangular in shape, around 43 by 18 feet, with 3-foot thick walls, and was built with local stone. The chapel is now a ruin: only the north wall and a fragment of west wall remain next to part of an ancillary building.

Here is a gallery of a recent tour of Murrayfield StadiumI did. Also in this album are several aerial shots I took some years back (I will upload a complete aerial shot at some point)
Murrayfield Stadium is a sports stadium located in the west end of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Its all-seater capacity was recently reduced from 67,800 to 67,130 to incorporate the largest permanent “big screens” It remains the largest stadium in Scotland.
